The BF SnapPad product collection includes pads designed to fit on Bigfoot 7-inch square and 10-inch octagon-shaped shaped jacks, most commonly found on type C Motorhomes. SnapPad BF is Origen’s fifth product line, joining SnapPad XTRA, PRIME, HiWay, and EQ.

“Over the past year we’ve had an ever-growing number of potential customers ask for a Bigfoot version,” says Origen RV Accessories COO Devon Wilson. “Naturally we’re very happy to oblige.”
Available in four packs of 7-inch (BF 7) and 10-inch (BF 10) pads, SnapPad BF can be purchased from the RV SnapPad and Bigfoot (Quadra) websites.

“Recently our customers have been asking us about SnapPads,” says Bob Slack, sales engineer for Bigfoot Leveling Systems. “We looked into the product and decided it was a no brainer to partner with Origen so that Bigfoot owners could have the benefit of permanent jack pads.”
